. >> thank you president yee. i want to say this data is promising and looks really great. of course we knew about the achievement gap and ten years ago and i feel like yeah the data shows that but we knew it ten years ago so the data showed the same thing and it's time to change things up and the same things you are doing you will get the same results so it's about funding but it's about how you spend your money. it's about how you prioritize your money and how you prioritize for equity in your budget? so i think it's a new day here. i firmly believe that those test scores, the most important thing about it it's a report card for our district and another really important report card is of course our graduation rates, so i think there's other things i mean it's great. our test scores are up and i want to give you a great pat on the back there staff and all the people that worked to get us there. however it is about graduation. it is about what happens for years after they graduate. that's our real test. that's our real measure and so at our last curriculum meeting we saw some som
